The agents have been talking, but whether you believe them or not is another story. Teddy's agent has said that it's 95% certain that the youngster will remain at Upton Park. Here's hoping. And Repka's agent claims that Hitman has received a renewed contract offer from the club. Depending on what the wage offer is (ie less than about 15k, or something with a relegation clause), I hope he accepts.
Another rumour is that the Hammers are linked with the gloriously named (if you're a fan of Australian beer) Carlton Cole. I always rated this lad and think he could do the business with us, despite his recent downturn in form. He's only very young still and would slot right into our side.
Finally, some good news for young Reo-Coker. He's captained the England u20s to a 3-0 win against South Korea, scoring a goal himself in the process. Well done Nige.
